Get Your Content Translated to Korean

Korean translation presents many challenges that even bilingual individuals may have trouble with. This is why Asian Absolute’s Korean translation services are used by clients all over the world, including the UK, the US, Asia, and Australia. The linguists on our team are all native speakers who specialize in different areas, so you can be confident you’ll find someone with the right expertise for your needs. They also have a deep understanding of the cultural differences between your home country and the target market, which is vital when translating Korean.

Korean is a syllabic language made up of blocks of consonants and vowels. It’s a double-byte language on any computer system, which can present additional challenges. And it doesn’t have much in common with other languages spoken in the region, such as Chinese or Japanese.

With Asian Absolute’s experts by your side, you’ll be able to compete against local rivals with the same level of confidence and authority.

Why choose Asian Absolute?

When it comes to Korean translation services, you can’t go wrong with a native linguist. At Asian Absolute, we pair you with native Korean translators or interpreters when you need to translate into Korean, and native English speakers when you’re targeting an English-speaking market. This ensures that your linguist has the deep understanding of both cultures required to localize your content. Whether that’s your website, your latest eLearning course, or as part of your interpreting service for your upcoming conference.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Korean spoken?

Korean is an official language only in the nations of South Korea and North Korea. But it is also spoken by people in Korean communities around the world.

How different is Korean from North Korea to South Korea?

Currently, the Korean spoken in North Korea and the Korean spoken in South Korea remain very similar.

Yet the differences between them are growing. These are mainly in accent and pronunciation, yet there are also increasing differences in vocabulary – largely because of the far faster rate of technological progress in South Korea and new words that refer to these technologies.

The longer that the two countries remain so cut off from each other, the greater the likelihood that these differences will continue to grow.

How different is Korean from Chinese and Japanese?

Although Korean, Chinese, and Japanese are often lumped together because of the desirability of entering each of the markets they are spoken in, the three languages are actually very different indeed.

Each belongs to a different language family, has a different vocabulary, and has different writing systems and grammar rules.

The romance languages of Europe have far more in common than Korean, Chinese, and Japanese.
